The Arkansas Razorbacks bounced back from their loss to Cal by upsetting the Minnesota Golden Gophers on Tuesday winning easily. Arkansas was clearly the better team against Minnesota and they didn’t look like the team who couldn’t close the gap against Cal. Michael Qualls leads the Razorbacks averaging 16 points and 6.4 rebounds. Alandaise Harris is averaging 15.6 points and 5.2 rebounds, Anthlon Bell is averaging 12.2 points, and Bobby Portis is averaging 9.0 points and 4.0 rebounds. Arkansas is averaging 85.6 points and they are shooting 47.4 percent while defensively they are allowing 72.8 points and their opponents shoot 43.4 percent. Arkansas will need another big effort if they hope to get another win here.
Gonzaga is 1-3-1 against the spread against a team with a winning record, 1-4-1 against the spread following a win, and 1-5-1 against the spread in their last seven non-conference games. Arkansas is 4-1 against the spread in their last five games, 4-11 against the spread in their last 15 neutral site games, and 4-1 against the spread against a team with a winning record.
The public is all ovr Gonzaga here with the line moving from three to 6.5 very quickly which alone makes me lean towards Arkansas but throw in how the Zags wore down in the second half against Dayton and how the Hogs stepped on the gas in the second half against Minnesota and it makes me like Arkansas even more.
